They say sharing is caring. I'd argue that's not always true when it comes to sharing online content. It is especially not true when it comes to sending content to friends. I'm slowly realising that impulse sharing is a vice, and not a healthy one. You find something and you immediately feel the urge to send it to someone else. I caught myself doing that just the other day and decided that it is something worth addressing. How am I going to do that? By following 3 simple rules:
- Read or watch the entire thing before sharing it
- Wait at least a minute after I'm done consuming content before sharing it
- Ask myself if this is something I'd like to receive
Those are the 3 rules I'm going to try follow when it comes to sharing content with my friends. We'll see how it goes.
